    Glympse, an app that lets you share your current location with specific people over a pre-determined period of time, is now supported on the Pebble smartwatch.

    Android and iOS users with the Glympse app can now bring up and share their whereabouts from their wrist. The implementation also supports messages and, if you’re running late, you can extend the sharing period in 15 minute chunks.

    As before, recipients don’t need the app to access your location; the live map can be accessed through any browser. It’s a nice touch that avoids the age-old problem of persuading friends to download yet another application.
